The 3 Broadway Songs Won Grammys for Song of the Year: A List – Billboard

The Tony Awards have never had a best song category, honoring the year’s best song from a Broadway musical. The Grammys have presented a song of the year award every year since they were founded in 1958. Three times, the award has gone to a Broadway song.

We’ll take a closer look at those three songs, but first, just think of some of the treasured songs that might have won (or at least been nominated) if the Tonys had had a best song category since they got underway in 1947. To name just a few: “Some Enchanted Evening” from South Pacific, “Shall We Dance” from The King and I,  “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady, “Ya Got Trouble” from The Music Man, “If I Were a Rich Man” from Fiddler on the Roof, “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha, “Being Alive” from Company, “I’m Still Here” from Follies, “Ease on Down the Road” from The Wiz, “One” from A Chorus Line, “Tomorrow” from Annie, “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” from Evita, “Memory” from Cats, “Seasons of Love” from Rent, “Good Morning Baltimore” from Hairspray and “My Shot” from Hamilton.

The Tonys – which are set to air on CBS on Sunday June 11 — include two related categories – best musical and best original score. This year’s nominees for best musical are & Juliet, Kimberly Akimbo, New York, New York, Shucked and Some Like It Hot. Kimberly Akimbo, Shucked and Some Like It Hot are also nominated for best original score, along with Almost Famous and KPOP.

Let’s take a closer look at the three Broadway songs that have won the Grammy for song of the year.
